My German for your English - looking for a female speaking partner in Zurich

Hey,

I'm a 36 years old female from Germany, living in Switzerland for several years

I want to improve my speaking in English. Writing and reading is easy for me, but my conversation skills are unfortunately really bad (in conversation I'm a beginner) I lack many vocabularies. That's why writing is easier. So I can look up words in the dictionary

I'm looking for a female speaking partner who I can meet in Zurich or a suburb of it.

I love meeting new people and look forward to your answers.

Sammy

Re: My German for your English - looking for a female speaking partner in Zurich

Hi Sammy!

I'm a 30 year old English native speaker (American) and spent 20 years in Geneva so I speak French fluently. But then I fell in love with a German (go figure!) and find myself living in Zurich the last 2 years. I've made progress but am still pretty basic with German. I have a hard time learning through studying grammar and would love to try and see if conversation helps!

While I'm not an English teacher my husband's English is really excellent now after 4 years of gently correcting pronunciations so I do have some practice! Unfortunately though I warn you: there is little logic to spoken English so practice makes perfect!

I live in Uster. Let's try it out next week? PM if interested! Ich freue mich sehr!

Sara

Re: My German for your English - looking for a female speaking partner in Zurich

Dear Sara, dear sammy

i'm looking for a tandem partner English - German, too. What do you think about a trio? I'm born in Switzerland, grow up in Bavaria and came back for 12 year. Now I'm living with my husband in Uster, too. I'm 42 and a trainer for internet and social media. My private interests are sports (jogging, climping) and cultural (cinema, reading good books, every kind of music exept jodeln and schlager ;-)

I'm good in reading and listening English, but I need more practice in conversation.

Would you like to start a conversation group?

Best wishes

Bea
